PES Summer Library Hours
Tuesdays & Thursdays
June 28 - July 28
Featuring Family Story Time from 9:30-10:00
Join Mrs. Francis for stories, songs, and crafts
All PES students and siblings accompanied by an adult are welcome at any time during open hours, to participate in the storytimes and/or to come in and 'shop' for books.
All student accounts can be looked up online at myschoolbucks.com. You just follow the prompts to set it up. The Nutrition Department cannot do this for you. We are coming to the end of another year and it is time to pay any outstanding lunch bills. We will always accept payments here at school and you can also put money on a student's account online at an addition cost of $1.95 per transaction. When you send money to school, if it is for siblings, please remember to mark how much goes on each child's account. Thank you for another great year!
From the Computer Lab
Many of the students have enjoyed playing Skoolbo this year! Skoolbo is an app that reinforces math and literacy skills and self-levels for each child. If your child would like to play over the summer, it's a free download for both Apple and Android devices, but you need to know our school code to join the game. The first time you run it, click Teachers and Schools and then type in our school code: ME7164TV. The game does require an internet connection to run so I don't advise installing it on a phone unless you have unlimited data. If your child has forgotten his/her password, send me an e-mail and I can let you know what it is.
FCS is offering camp scholarships for the variety of summer camps that they offer. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, there are applications in our office. These scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information on summer camps, you can call Freeport Community Services at 865-3985.
News from Impact
IMPACT meetings are the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM.
Don't forget to grab your CLINK bags in the office, shop on Amazon Smile, and turn in your Box Tops! Every little bit makes a difference!
Share with a classroom opportunity: Do you or anyone you know have or would like to share their knowledge with students on why lichen, moss, bacteria, and/or algae may be growing on gravestones or can identify what the different growth organisms can tell us? Please contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become a Volunteer: Do you have any talents, hobbies, or special interests? We are looking for volunteers to share their special talents, hobbies, or interests with PES classrooms. Teachers are always looking for ways to enhance their curriculum. IMPACT will be linking these resources creating community partnerships in education. We have had over 30 PES families sign up to receive volunteer need notifications. You can send a message to Heather at email@example.com noting that you would like to join our Volunteer List.
